Who are the 2020 US Democratic presidential candidates?
20:10, Thursday, 13 February, 2020
Less than nine months out from the 2020 United States presidential election, the pool of Democratic candidates vying for their party's nomination continues to shrink.
There are now only eight candidates in the race, down from more than 25 earlier this year. The field is likely to continue to shrink as leading candidates pull away in the polls and as the race heats up.
So far, the Democrats have held eight debates.
On Tuesday, candidates faced off in the first primary of the 2020 cycle. The New Hampshire primary came on the heels of a chaotic Iowa caucus in which no candidate has been declared the outright winner. Senator Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg - the two leading candidates - called for a recanvass of the results.
